McDonalds has refuted his claim as fabricated
A Ohio man demanded 77,000 pounds in damages from a renowned fast food chain after he found a live mouse in his milkshake.
Kenneth Moyer Jr, 43, said he had already finished the chocolate shake after which he made the shocking discovery, according to a Mirror website report. However, the eatery, McDonalds, refuted his claim as fabricated.
“I took two milkshakes – the other for my friend – from the McDonald’s drive-through in Akron at around 1.15pm on December 15,” said Moyer while talking to Akron Beach Journal.
On his way back home in his truck, the two friends kept sipping their shake.
According to Moyer Jr, “I felt my straw was getting clogged up. After dropping my friend, I reached home and left the cup in the vehicle. A short while later, I came back to pick my cigarettes from the truck and spotted the straw move. I removed the lid from the cup and found a live mouse in it.”
Later in the day, he said, he fell sick and kept vomiting. At night the same day, he reported it to the manager of the branch. But the manager accused him of placing the rodent in the cup himself, he said.
He contacted his lawyer who sent the frozen mouse to be tested.
Giving his reaction, the eatery’s co-owner said the implications are ‘wildly fabricated’ and false. “We have served the Akron area for over 55 years. We have made safety and cleanliness our top priorities and remain proud of our track record, he said.
“We eagerly await our opportunity to share the facts in court.”
